Yes the book s mentions 12 cemeteries as follows:
Barlow Cemetery – at the east end of St Patrick’s Cemetery
Barlow Cemetery in E. Fairfield is more often known as Leach Cemetery
Bradley Cemetery on the south road
Eqypt Cemetery in E. Fairfield
Munro Soule Cemetery, western Fairfield near Fairfax line
Kerley Cemetery on the Kerley farm (in 1938) near Sheldon line
Morey Cemetery on Bryan Branon’s farm (in 1938)
North Fairfield Cemetery in Herrick is near the Union Church
Pond Cemetery on the western side of the pond near Swanton
Pumpkin Village Cemetery
St Patrick’s Catholic Cemetery
St Rocks Cemetery (near Ward Paradee’s place in 1938)
The Village Cemetery behind the Trinity Church is known as the Episcopal Cemetery

Check the following link which may offer more explanation and perhaps more inscriptions

I know that the Eygypt Cem. is on a road running north from Rte 36 in E. Fairfield Village near the Bakersfield line. Since I'm not from the area I don't know the name of the street.

Since John Mitchell died 20 years before Jemima she may have remarried to a Rich - or her maiden name may have been Rich - or her first husband may have been a Rich. I have no idea. If you figure out the tie between the 2 families you may find out why they moved her to the RIch family plot. She seems to be old enough to have been the mother of the Samuel mentioned below.

Jemima A. Rich, dau of S. & L., d. 12, Dec 1843, a 22yr 11 mos [Egypt]
Josephine Rich, d/o S. & L., d. 21, Jan 1842 a 1 yr [Egypt]
Joel Rich, s/o S. & L., d. 18, Jan 1842, a 5 yrs 3 mos. [Egypt]
Julia Ann Rich, d. of S & L d. 14, Jan 1842 a 3 yrs 6 mos [Egypt]
Lydia, wife of Samuel Rich, 1800-1856
Orissa Rich 1827-1908
Jemima Mitchell 1760-1862 [Morey – later removed to Eygpt]

Hope this helps
